TO ALL SPORT EDITORS
From Coach Glen Mills
"Arising from Usain's participation at the National Trials in Kingston
this past weekend where he had a slight problem, after careful
assessment I have had to withdraw him from the Samsung Diamond League
Meeting in Monaco on July 20 to give him sufficient time for treatment
and time to train and prepare for the Olympic Games in London."
"I am happy to have earned my spot on the Jamaican Olympic team
despite the challenge. I will be in London to defend my titles in the
100, 200 and 4 X 100 metres. I want to congratulate my fellow Racers
Track Club Members along with the other athletes who made the team. I
thank everyone for their support."
